Anime That is Cut in the UK: The Definitive Thread

Just a small note: just because something has no cuts by the BBFC does not mean it's not cut. The Walking Dead UK was passed uncut by the BBFC yet did have some cuts made, but because the UK discs used the cut European masters, the BBFC did not do any cutting themselves. So if the master is cut then it won't show on the BBFC.

I'm not saying AF is right, but be aware that lack of BBFC cuts =/= no cuts in some cases.
That's exactly why I asked for evidence. Just saying something is cut doesn't make it so. To support your argument, if you look at the BBFC information for The Human Centipede 2, it's marked as uncut. In other words the distro precut it for classification. The point is that you can see that information in the Press releases and news stories. If AF offers more details about the cuts or links, then it's worth investigating and including in a definitive list of cut UK anime.

EDIT: So that got me curious and Googling, which AF could have done first and saved me some bits...

Initially cut, the 2006 release by Manga Entertainment presented the uncut movie for the first time, however, two moments of profanity in the English dub were still edited, not cut, just muted. The profane version was released in Australia. From Wiki The Japanese version of the film, available as part of the 2006 release is completely unedited. More detail here
You also get stuff that is double cut, both by the distributor & by the BBFC such as the original Legend of the Overfiend series. That was cut to make it from an episodic OVA to a film & then for content by Manga & then for content again by the BBFC. I think Violence Jack was also double cut like that as well & LA Blue Girl Returns .

The Movies of Naruto on Amazon.co.uk have the same dub as naruto unleahed right?
Or is it the viz media dub?

any updates
No news is good news methinks. Reviewing the list i'm seeing a new trend of music cuts due to liscences, just when we seem to seeing almost no cuts to the shows a new issue crops up :(
 
Technically these are cuts... I mean not BBFC cuts, but removals by distributors...

Dragon Ball Z (Manga). Surely everyone knows about the Orange boxes by now that we are getting in the UK, where Funimation took the original 4:3 16mm source material, scanned it at HD resolution, cleaned it up with some serious DNR, and reframed it for anamorphic presentation on SD DVDs. Basically the top and bottom of the original image has been cropped to achieve this... which I guess is a cut of sorts... Everyone knew this anyway going in, and Manga have been forthright about Tweeting this ahead of time just in case.


Bleach Series 9: Part 1 was more of a surprise to me however. Everything up to Bleach Series 8 Part 2 was sourced from Australia's Madman Entertainment. But from Season 9, they've switched to Viz Europe and Kaze. It obviously saves time and money to switch from a middle party halfway across the world to dealing directly with Viz across the Channel.

Now Kaze have their own way of doing things, not all of which I agree with, but since this thread is about cuts, you should know that Kaze have dispensed with the next episode previews and more significantly the Illustrated Guide to Soul Reapers Golden comedy sketches at the end of each episode. From Series 9:1, you only get the episodes.

BBFC don't cut anyway - they just advised what would need to be cut to get a particular rating and the distributor then makes the cuts (and can indeed make cuts before even presenting to the BBFC).

Omitting extras is tangentially relevant to this thread in the same was as music substitutions but I wouldn't call the DBZ crops a "cut" since the runtime is unchanged. You wouldn't call the regular Star Wars VHS tapes a "cut" version of the widescreen versions for example.

That seems like a really poor excuse to me and I'd much rather it be delayed a month than miss part of a episode, even if it isnt related to the story.

I hope they at least restore the omake segments on Part 2 as a special feature.

When the first Widescreen videotapes started coming out, I went on a binge of throwing out my old Pan and Scan videos and replacing them with widescreen versions. Star Wars was only the first. So for me, altering the image from the OAR is synonymous to cutting the movie.

Re: Anime that is Cut in the UK... The definitive thread.

Funny how Code Geass has a few frames that need to be replaced, yet Dance in the Vampire Bund gets past the radar.

not very consistent are you BBFC

The main problem with that single frame of Code Geass is that there was no context for it.
